I thought Windows allowed any case, so you could open a file with
"PG_VERSION" or "pg_version" and it will open any file of any matching

This is amazing.  You can actually run SQL statements on NT.

What would you like done with this patch?  Should it merged into the
tree, or just used for people testing things on NT, and later merged in
as you feel more comfortable?  You can make a 6.4 final patch, perhaps.
